This is the error I receive:

pesto:pyRigolWFM-master robert$ python --forgiving info Newfile1.wfm 
Format does not follow the known file format. Try the --forgiving option.
If you'd like to help development, please report this error:

Field padding1 ==  not met, got 8

Will try to investigate later.

Hi Robert,

the WFM files are just memory dumps (at least for the DS1000 series) and hence quite specific to the oscilloscope series. I've never seen an DS2000 series WFM file but I know, that the DS4000/6000 is vastly different and only shares the file ending.

If you could share your file, I'll have a look.

Hi Gents,
On my DS2101 I've got the same issue.

Guys, I do not own a DS2000 series. The file format is completely different. I have some ideas but I need test data. Could you please provide me with the wfm files and also the corresponding settings/screenshots/csv files?

Once I have several of such files I'll implement a DS2000 specific reader module.
